  Johnny Miller Profile

In golf's modern era, it's commonly understood that no player has ever achieved the brief but memorable brilliance of Johnny Miller. In 1974 and 1975, Miller won 12 tournaments on the PGA Tour. More important than the number of victories was the manner in which they were achieved; for during this streak Miller hit the ball consistently closer to the flag than any other player in history. At his best, Miller's game was marked by incredibly aggressive and equally accurate iron play.

Miller won five of the first eleven events of 1974, and three more later that year. These victories easily earned him the Player of the Year title. The following year, he won four more tournaments. This brilliant stretch was framed by Miller's most important victories. At the 1973 U.S. Open at Oakmont, he was six behind after a third-round 76 when his game caught fire. He birdied the first four holes of the final round and continued to shoot at the flag. He made four more birdies against one bogey for a 63 in the final round, the lowest score ever by a winner at that prestigious event. In the 1976 British Open at Royal Birkdale, Miller trailed 19-year-old Seve Ballesteros by two going into the final round, but put together a 66 to win by six.
